Intimate Lakeside Madden's Resort Wedding / Kristen + Beau

What’s more classic Minnesota than a wedding up in the North woods?! We got to journey up to the beautiful Madden’s on Gull Lake last fall - a true staple for MN vacationers - for Kristen and Beau’s romantic and natural lakeside wedding.

Bringing their people together for a trip up north, the entire day felt like a mini-destination wedding. We started the day with the bridal party getting ready in separate cabins by the lake. Things really kick off with an adorable first look between B+K, followed by a sweet private reading of letters to each other. Group photos were simply a blast thanks to their lively group of family and friends. Their intimate lakeside ceremony was truly special - Kristen’s dad officiated, and their official union after 10+ years as a couple left very few dry eyes. We lucked out with one of the most beautiful and dramatic sunsets over the lake, followed by dinner with a view and an epic dance party to top it all off. We adore you, Kristen and Beau. Togetherness suits you so well, and we’re so thankful to have been a part of this Minnesota destination celebration!
